"Even then a disclosure is risk free."
Nothing is ever risk free. Not even a fat free probiotic yogurt.
Although, seriously, I largely agree. However, if you do believe that the deceased expected confidentiality then I would suggest that you seriously consider respecting it. The Trustees may well not complain, but there may be an individual out there who is not in the will and believes they should be, and that's where your risk (albeit tiny) lies.

The only real issue is confidentiality, but the only ones who might sue you for breach of confidentiality are the Trustees! It's exempt under FOI s41 (you wouldn't tell me) but that is not relevant.
So if you are satisfied they are who they say they are go ahead unless, perhaps, you have any reason to expect the deceased would not have wanted this. Even then a disclosure is risk free.
